[laughter] >> the questions are always easy if the answers are yes or no. >> i hope it's easy question. it's two. one there's not an answer yet to, and that is how the liability issue that was mentioned with regard to the new frame work may play out, and i wanted to ask also about the broad community of hackers who many of whom see themselves as security researchers, who report, you know, zero days when they find vulnerabilities. i'd like to know what the panel thinks of that community. is there a place for them, a crowd sources, if you will, of vulnerabilities? what do you think? >>
